Cornish produce in Ough's spring collection

The distinctive taste of fresh, free-range Cornish quails' eggs is set to be enjoyed by people up and down the country this spring. The tiny speckled eggs, produced at St Teath near Bodmin, are part of the new Spring Collection hamper from Oughs of Liskeard, which is being made available nation-wide by mail order.

The hamper has been put together with support from Cornwall Taste of the West, the Objective One funded regional food group.

The quails' eggs are just one of a selection of Cornish treats in the Spring Collection, packed in an open wicker basket and designed to delight anyone who loves Cornwall, or simply loves quality and taste.

The Spring Collection from Oughs also includes Cornish strawberry conserve, made by hand to a traditional farmhouse recipe; organic clotted cream shortbread and delicately spiced Cornish saffron cake; aromatic and fruity dry white wine, made in the Camel valley from Cornish grapes; a box of six luxury chocolates, handmade in Mullion using the finest Belgian chocolate, and Clotted Cream fudge from the Lizard Peninsula, made on the farm using milk and cream from the resident Jersey herd.

Four out of the seven food and drink producers who contributed to the hamper have received Objective One funding through the Cornwall Taste of the West umbrella fund. They are:

• Boddington's Berries - £4,979 grant for marketing and promotional work

• Camel Valley Wine - £750 grant for marketing work and £5,290 for equipment

• Trenance Chocolates - £1,500 grant for design and promotional work

• Roskilly's - £6,225 grant for marketing and £24,689 capital investment for equipment

The Oughs Spring Collection is priced at just £30.00, plus £8.50 for next day delivery nation-wide. It can be ordered from Oughs by email – details at www.oughs.co.uk – or phone 01579 343253.
